Livermore Halloween Classic
The Impact should be proud of their performance this weekend.
They dominated the game against Manteca and went into the game
against Placerville RR with confidence. They held the eventual
tournament winners to a tie until the last few minutes of the
Livermore Impact vs Manteca
Good passing and intelligent attacks proved that the Impact can
score goals. The Impact outshot Manteca 8 to 3 and scored two in
the first half. Danny Parks played really well and provided the
impetus to stir the Impact to success. A great run down the left
wing, from Danny, and a cross to the far post was just right for
Jared Jamison who put the ball in the net. Jared Jamison had a
similar play on the right and this time John Mello scored to make
it 2-0 at half time. Manteca scored at the beginning of the
first half but the Impact applied pressure and dominated the
second half as well. A goal mouth scramble resulted in the ball
coming out to Jason Moitoso who had no doubt about scoring. He
sealed the game at 3-1.
Goals by: Jared Jamison, John Mello, Jason Moitoso
Assists: Danny Parks
Result: Livermore Impact 3, Manteca 1
Livermore Impact vs Placerville RR
In was clear from the opening ten minutes that the Impact had
their hands full with this Placerville side. But the Impact
defense resisted and bore the brunt of a dominant Placerville
attack. The second half was a different story as the Roadrunners
exploited the gaps in The Impact defence and scored three in the
laste several minutes.
Result: Livermore Impact 0, Placerville RR 3
Livermore Impact vs Lodi
Warming up took an hour longer today because the previous game
went to extra time and then a shoot out. Both teams were
obviously tense and it took a while for them to settle down.
Lodi settled well which frustrated the Impact who gave up three
penalties and then a clear goal by the end of the first half.
The second half was a clearer reflection of the strength of the
teams and the Impact recovered. A cross from Scott Lassey to the
near post was converted by Jason Moitoso and then a goal mouth
scramble brought the ball to Seamus Lennon who recovered another
goal. The final score was 5-2 for Lodi.
Goals By: Jared Jamison, Seamus Lennon
Assist: Scott Lassey
Result: Livermore Impact 2, Lodi 5
